Randall Sexton –
“Expressive Brushwork En Plein Air”
Join us for what is sure to be a fun and exciting week of painting in the Tropics with Randall Sexton
To be in the moment as much as humanly possible is what we so often strive to do. Painting plein air is a good way to get there. Join California artist Randall Sexton for a fun week of “choice moments” while painting the various scenes close to La Casa. Randall Sexton, Carmel Mission, oil
We will be painting on location at inspirational places. We will visit the award winning Puerto Vallarta Botanical Gardens where we will have the bottom of their Hacienda Restaurant to use as a temporary studio, after sketching in the morning they will prepare us a wonderful lunch and then more art play in the afternoon, (perhaps after a quick siesta on one of their lounge chairs overlooking the mountains). We will also spend a day at the nearby charming mountain town of El Tuito, painting at the Zocalo with the cobblestone streets and charming buildings surrounding it, with a simple demo in the morning, and another great lunch in the courtyard garden at Marios Patio, a great hacienda style restaurant right on the square, then painting in the afternoon. Another day we will take a boat trip to explore the gorgeous coastline, (witnessing a wonderful display of atmospheric perspective) and arrive at the wonderful rock formations at Los Arcos National Coral Reef Park, (snorkeling anyone?), and onto a wonderful beach for picnic and sketching. At each location Randall will share his wisdom, insights and mastery to help you capture expressive brushwork while painting on location. You will also have valuable one on one time with the instructor to help you with your grasp of the materials, techniques and concepts.
Randall has a reputation as an excellent teacher with a unique ability to address the individual needs of each student. His teaching experience includes workshops abroad with the Sedona Art Center, Pixar Animation Studios and The Academy of Art University San Francisco.
